The desire to show fantastic worlds and tell stories in the face of the inevitable march of time and destructive forces is at the core of the film. Anderson's films are beginning to show the soul beneath the exactitude.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a fast-paced beautiful spectacle that never ceases to amuse you.

Magnificent and magical, once you check-in, you'll never want to check-out.

To alter a phrase from Batman, who won't mind because he's not real, The Grand Budapest Hotel is the movie audiences deserve and the one Anderson needed.

Those of you who worship at the auteur altar of the director, who have long embraced his fastidious, meticulous style of studied nostalgia and to-the-inch symmetrical specificity, need no prodding.

Anderson's particular aesthetic can sometimes serve to keep the audience at arm's length, but here it achieves something deeply beautiful, even warm and inviting.

What the film amounts to is nothing more than a well-done and admirable piece of fluff.

The sometimes erratic tone and plot machinations mean it may not be perfect, but ignore your reservations and check in to The Grand Budapest Hotel.

A cat and mouse chase with a lot of humor and whimsey.
March 8, 2019
The Grand Budapest Hotel is immense fun and, as far as Anderson's oeuvre is concerned, unquestionably the rarest of fillet steak.

It is certainly a magical and childlike way of storytelling, even if the content is a little more adult.

This might just be Wes Anderson's best film; it's certainly his most thrilling. The cult director has bolstered the whimsical humor with a raucous crime caper and it's a riot.

It all seems kind of silly and trivial, but under Anderson's screenplay -- inspired by the works of Stefan Zweig -- it's tied together with a bit of a melancholy sweetness that gives it some unexpected heart.

I didn't find it amusing, and while I can appreciate the creativity, it's an hour and 40 minutes I wish I could take back.

The conceit of having the film refracted through four stories-within-stories beautifully thematises the idea of nostalgia and storytelling as part of our balm of remembrance.

I wouldn't describe it as a film that will have a profound impact on your psyche. It is however a visually delightful, beautifully acted tale.

Fans of the director will not be disappointed, almost expecting the bit of meandering that occurs in the middle that is immediately forgiven in the context of the whole.

At a time when Judd Apatow is Hollywood's go-to funnyman, a film like The Grand Budapest Hotel is sorely needed. It's not overlong, it isn't self-indulgent, and the comedy is timed to perfection.

Like a beautiful stacking petruschka doll - open up another and another of its layers until you reach an empty center.

The movie is so lush with detail that only a big screen can do it justice.
